Michigan GOP: Robo-calls 'disappointing'

Bobby Schostak, Michigan Republican Party chairman, weighs in on the Rick Santorum campaign robo-calls and Mitt Romney's primary win.

On the robo-calls, Schostak says, “Well, you know, obviously we were disappointed. That's not the way that we want to see Republicans behave. Our voters are, you know, are informed voters. I frankly don't think that it had much of an impact. I think all of the candidates on the Republican ticket ended up getting a few Democrats who showed up to vote. Obama was on the ballot. If they wanted to come and vote in our primary, it was open. They could have voted for Obama. And at the end of the day, yes, it's disappointing. It's not the way we would like to see Republicans in a primary behave.”

Starting Point with Soledad O’Brien airs week mornings from 7-9am ET on CNN.
